Barbara Schultz Passes

Monday, 31 August 2015

Barbara Schultz, matriarch of the prolific racing family, passed away on August 23, 2015 after a prolonged illness at the age of 79.

Mrs. Schultz will be remembered by many in the drag racing community as the mother and business manager of Roberta Schultz Mack, a fixture on the East Coast funny car match racing circuit in the 1970s and 1980s along with her late husband, Walter "Tex" Schultz.

In addition to her daughter Roberta, her son Carl drove the family funny car for a time and her daughter Suzie drove the family Pro Stock car on the early Miss America Pro Stock Circuit. Her son-in-law, Tod Mack, is the founder and former owner of the Maryland International Raceway in Budds Creek, Maryland, among several other drag strips and is recognized as one of the sport's influential innovators. He also drove the Big Mac Attack funnny cars for many years. Her oldest son, Walter, was the guiding force of her youngest son, Shawn's, very successful motorcross career.

The current generation of grandchildren and great-grandchildren are continuing the Schultz motorsports legacy with Greg Cooper, a successful motocross racer and great-granddaughters, Alexis and Mia Schults, who are major forces on the PDRA and NHRA Junior Dragster circuits.

Services will be held at 11 AM on Tuesday, September 1st at Mountcastle Funeral Home in Woodbridge, VA 22191
